Gishwati Community & CITW Update, January 2024

In January the Gishwati Community Committee came together for a meeting that is held three times a year. During the meeting, projects that are underway were discussed, as well as future projects to implement next at the schools and in the community.

The members, who represent the greater Gishwati area, thanked Wilderness for their support in 2023 and are looking forward to implementing many more empowering projects in 2024!

During January Gisunzu Primary School students had a chance to visit the boundary of Gishwati-Mukura National Park, where park Scouts explained to them the importance of the park, and of course all about the animals that live here.

Kinihira Secondary School’s CITW Youth Environmental Stewardship (YES) Club is one of the most active environmental clubs in Rwanda. Its 159 members meet every Wednesday afternoon to learn about conservation. In January they held debates about environmental issues, which were very well attended, not only by the YES Club members but also other students from the school.
